Newest LotusRC T580P and T580P+ quads


Hi everyone

The older lotusRC Quad forum has gone so big and people are having issues finding their answers so I thought I will start this new discussion for the newest and newly released LotusRC T580P and T580P+ quads that i am reviewing.

I am testing them and flight videos are attached here with this post.

they flew very well on 8kmph windy day, T580P+ took even 800g payload easily and flew well on 7kmph windy day

T580P+ is fold able for easy transportation and storage, uses 14 inch props instead of 12 inch and uses bigger motors. CF structure is a charm too. Board (esc layout seems to be different as well)

Check out the pics here in this post as well for both T580s

My testing is still going on. I will keep everyone posted about how things are going.

Two of the motors stopped working on 3rd flight on T580P+, there is no burning hardware smell though but it could be just a faulty board or a glitch. LotusRC has dispatched a new ESC and board for T580P+ so I can continue testing and will analyze my board that stopped working for what happened.

T580P however on the other hand still flying great and doing a good job. Now its just too damn windy in my area. so I have to wait, I have installed my FPV system and a HD camera on T580P and waiting for the winds to get a bit lower on gusts then I can fly it and see how it will perform.

My older T580 is still flying great and very smooth for two month, after LotusRC replaced the board with upgrades (firmware and hardware maybe) and for two months never had any FOD (flip of death) or any other issues, except it fell like a stone from 5 feet when battery ran out. Guess we have to find out how to tweak them to auto land or guess my battery really totally ran out of juice and had no power to supply for auto landing.

I will keep everyone posted regarding my testing on these new quads.

Here are youtube videos

gutted on closer inspection the motors on the t580+ appear to be only 14pole same as the dt700s nut the motor i link to is 22pole so there might be a possible upgrade for the t580+

Hi all,
these Motors from Hobby King are not to use in T580P or T580P+ . I dont think Lotus Rc have made change in the Escs. The original T580 escs are only good for , 18 Amp Max !
So cant be good for these 30Amp Max Hobby King Motors. Right ?

Also the new system of securing motors with horizontal screws is a premiere too. More closeups will be good...
